The place is dimly lit and romantic. Certainly a restaurant to bring a spouse or colleague. Their staff is led by Chef Lior who opened up the original dairy Pescada and he has put Chef Ben from Israel in charge of this meat restaurant. Add the sous chef Denise, who was the Executive Chef of Brooklyn Steak Co, along with Albert Bijou, the manager/consultant and Daniel, head waiter, and you've got a pretty formidable team here.
The way I look at it, and going back to the price question, if you are worried that your bill will be high, but you still want to try out the restaurant, it's all in the ordering. You want to look for appetizers that are worth sharing and filling. My wife and I got 5 appetizers and we were pretty full. And it retailed for just $107. Five really good dishes and you're out of there. I'm sure the restaurant would probably like you to order a main, but just something to think about. But, yes, we got the Surprise steak too and finished it, because it was delicious, but even with all the items I got below, (let's say excluding dessert) you could have a phenomenal meal with 6 items for just over $200, for 2 people, everything in. Take away an app or two and it's well below $200. Not as crazy as you thought it would be, right? You don't always have to leave a restaurant where you can't walk. You will eat well, you will be satisfied, and you can have a banana when you come home if you still want a bite.
From the moment we walked in for a Sunday lunch until the moment we left, every second spent inside this lovely restaurant was fantastic. The waiters are courteous, the presentation is upscale, the prices are reasonable, the menu has something for everyone, and the delicious food is obviously prepared by a team whose passion is all things culinary. The ambiance made us feel as if we were sitting outdoors in a sun soaked location, and the attention to detail (especially loved the cushioned foam underneath the tables) is remarkable. We're already looking forward to coming back for dinner.
I absolutely love this restaurant. It's always packed because their food is so good! Really- the best kosher restaurant in Brooklyn. Their fish is always fresh, their sides are so creative and DELICIOUS. My husband doesn't usually like to go to dairy restaurants- he always prefers meat-- but Pescada is his only exception, and ONLY preference. Way to go on changing the game, Pescada!
this place seriously has the best food. im a very picky eater and there are no good kosher dairy places until now. we took my sister out for her birthday there my family was raving and now my sister (who lives in jersey) wont eat at any other dairy place besides this one. and their customer service is amazing!!!!
